Two thoughts have crossed my mind since our recent New England blizzard passed through:
- I undeniably, unquestionably, irrevocably detest snow (my years in Florida have spoiled me).
- In its purest state—before time takes its toll—snow reminds me of cream cheese.
Curling up with hot cocoa and some crackers or a toasted bagel with a tart, creamy spread by a warm fire (or apartment radiator) and a good book—or movie*—is the perfect way to spend your time if you’re snowed-in. At least, that was my weekend.
And for DIY cream cheese all you need are three ingredients—THREE ingredients! Are you sold on this idea yet? And imagine the possibilities for other recipes: carrot cake frosting; a cheesecake base; cheesecake ice cream…In case you haven’t guessed I’m a sugar-holic.
